  • What does an energy healing or coaching appointment look or feel like?
    Think of energy healing as the malware scan and cleanup for your mind-emotion-spirit. You don't have to be a computer whiz to understand its benefits. Just as antivirus software safeguards your computer, energy healing safeguards your inner self, no matter where you are on your life journey. When our subtle energy systems are restored, the unwanted feelings, thoughts and beliefs or 'old stories' that get in our way also clear. Just as no two people or situations are identical, appointments with me (Lesley) are always individually tailored. But, of course, it's nice to be able to know and picture what will happen during an appointment. Firstly, I listen to you... deeply. We discuss what's bothering you most and I take into account your experience, history and personal beliefs (which are always respected). If stress, anxiety, or fatigue weigh you down, our energy healing sessions act like a digital detox, restoring balance, vitality and an empowering mindset. And for those who are already thriving, there's always room for greater well-being. I will select from the best approaches - from my toolbox of techniques - to design an appointment that will narrow the gap between where you are now and where you would like to be. At all times you will be heard, respected and supported as you experience powerful holistic transformation to help you on your path. Here are a few examples: Assessing and balancing the energy field: Clients pop up onto the meditation table (fully-clothed, always) and I place my hands gently on specfiic areas of the body or move hands above your body. You are relaxed, eyes closed. Some clients feel shifts in themselves which they may experience as temperature (warmer or cooler), or tingling, or particular thoughts, feelings or memories might come to mind. From time to time I will ask you to give me some feedback so I can continue to customise the treatment to best meet your needs. Clearing emotional blockages or limiting beliefs rapidly: People who want to work on specific emotional blockages, limiting beliefs or traumas benefit from energy coaching and energy healing. I am a trained practitioner in a technique that research shows can clear anxiety, stress, trauma, grief, additions, limiting beliefs and improve confidence and happiness. Results last a long time, even from a single appointment. In this technique the client tune into their feelings, thoughts or memories as I guide you through tapping on particular accupoints. It's definitely not a placebo! The power of the mind: The mind is an extraordinary thing to help clients shift from their current to their desired state. In fact research has shown that what the client is doing internally is the key factor to making the approach successful, or not. In mindfulness, visualisation and focussing oriented therapy, the client can remain seated or lie on the meditation table. I lead you and guide you to through mindful exercises or journeys during which you will gain a 'felt sense' of your situation and be able to shift in a way that it's impossible when we only access our logical left brain. Custom blended remedy drops: Some clients who would like further support to feel better benefit from me curating and creating a small bottle of custom blended flower remedy drops to support you between appointments . You may have heard of Emergency Essence or Bach's Rescue Remedy... it's similar but a blend curated for you. Complementary Therapy: Energy Healing and Energy Coaching is a holistic mind-body-spirit healing system of ancient and modern practices that restores the balance and flow of energy throughout the body, mind, and spirit. It's a complementary modality that doesn't exclude any Western treatment you may be undertaking. It is gentle and non-invasive and the client remains fully clothed throughout the treatment. I look forward to seeing you. Join me today, and together, we'll elevate your state of well-being through the transformative power of energy healing. ~ Lesley
  • What is Energy Healing?
    Gentle. Powerful. Non-invasive. Energy healing is a holistic practice that focuses on the subtle energy systems within and around the human body, with the intent to remove blockages, restore balance, and enhance the body's natural healing abilities. It's based on the belief that subtle forms of energy surround and permeate living beings. You may have heard terms used in different cultures and fields that refer to these energies; chi, prana, life force, auras, chakras, biofields or bio electro-magnetic fields. Whatever words you use, when this energy flows freely, it supports physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Conversely, blockages or imbalances in this energy are believed to contribute to illness, disharmony and limitation. ​ Drawing on both evidence-based mind-body research and ancient practices, my style of modern energy healing doesn't necessitate any specific belief system, making it a universally applicable tool. ​ Holistic energy healing approaches can be used as a standalone part of your holistic wellness or peak-performance program or as an adjunct therapy to support your existing medical and mental health care. Energy Healing does not replace conventional medical care, it is complementary to it. Always seek the advice of your GP or healthcare professional if you would like to have your current prescribed treatments re-evaluated. They will be happy to run tests and update recommendations where appropriate.
  • What length appointment should I book?
    Initial appointments (adults): 1 hour 15 minutes is recommended Regular appointment (adults): 1 hour For children and teens: after an initial 1 hour appointment, 45-minute sessions work best Quick fix EFT appointment for existing clients: 20 minutes
  • How many appointments are needed?
    It's very much on a case-by-case basis. There is no 'typical' number. One appointment can be enough to shift a good portion of your priority challenge, but deeper, more nuanced and persistent conditions can require many appointments. In studies of Returned Veterans living with PTSD, it was found that 7 to 10 appointments were required. Children and teens typically experience faster results than older adults as there are fewer layers that need clearing, balancing or addressing.
  • Where can I read more about the energy healing modalities at Sacred Renewal Studios?
    Pop across to the Articles & Resources tab on this website for articles that I've written or picked up from leaders in the field. It's a work in progress, so if there's anything you need to know before you make an appointment but can't find, you can text me and we can book a free 15 minute call to be sure that you're comfortable and confident. Or feel free to drop me a line through the form at the bottom of each of these web pages.
  • Opening hours for appointments
    I am available for appointments * On Wednesdays: in person at my Lithgow practice, online or by phone (if the therapy needed allows for that) * On Saturdays: Usually online only. In person appointments can be arranged. * On Sundays: for online and distance healing only. Press the BOOK button to see available appointments. In person and online (video) appointments are listed separately. Be sure to select your preferred approach, and pick a convenient available time. You will receive a short follow up questionnaire so I know a bit about you and your priorities in advance.
  • What modalities do you use?
    Energy Healers and Energy Healing Practitioners typically use more than a single modality. Energy healing is a broad discipline that encompasses a wide range of modalities, each with its own techniques, philosophies, and cultural origins Some of these tools and techniques work best in person, many are just as powerful when delivered via an online 'Zoom' appointment, while others are effective as distance healing. Some of the modalities, I draw from in my 'big tool kit of techniques' are: Clinical Tapping: emotional freedom techniques aka EFT. Deep listening and holistic Counselling Focussing therapy Meditation: many forms including mindfulness meditation Intuitive and empowering healing visualisations Working with Energy Fields: Usui Reiki, The Reconnection, Quantum-Touch, Silva Method, aura and chakra clearing and balancing, energy blueprint reset Flower Essence remedies: custom blends Dowsing and pendulum work: for health and insight, aka radesthesia Sabotage clearing Space clearing Spiritual and intuitive guidance
  • What are your qualifications?
    I have been studying and practicing various energy healing modalities, tools and techniques for over 20 years ranging from practitioner training in individual modalities, to a 3 year Diploma of Energetic Healing and so many different workshops and seminars that I have lost count. At every step, I have trusted my education to the most credible and talented teachers and mentors available. Importantly, I have also applied energy healing and mindfulness tools and techniques to speed up and support my own personal and professional journey. In energy healing appointments with me, you will experience one or more modalities and healing tools and techniques. The appointment flows seamlessly from one to another according to your need. That could include EFT tapping, working intuitively on your energy field, mindfulness meditation, focussing technique, Reconnective Healing, QuantumTouch, Reiki, and more. I will also take time to teach you easy DIY techniques you can use for yourself between appointments. When you work with me you can be assured that I am professional, practiced, ethical, kind and 100% focussed on helping you. ~ Lesley
  • What should I wear to my appointment?
    Clients remain fully-clothed during appointments. Wearing clothes that are a loose or relaxed fit will ensure you are comfortable if we will be doing a treatment that involves you lying on the massage table. At the Lithgow Studio, there is a floor-standing fan to keep things comfortable in summer and a heater and extra blankets to keep you warm in winter.
  • What's the benefit of seeing a practitioner?
    While vlogs and social media tutorials about energy healing and tapping can be an interesting introduction and an exciting first step into this world, energy work is very nuanced and there is no 'one size fits all'. The best results occur when an appointment is tailored just for you. That's why engaging a professional practitioner makes all the difference. Together we will tackle your situation and exacting needs in a supportive listening space.
  • Does it work for physical problems and pain?
    Energy healing can support health outcomes and reduce pain responses by lowering the body's stress response. Chronic stress impairs the body's immune system and makes many other health problems worse. That may lead to downstream effects throughout the body. EFT Tapping is particularly effective in this regard (see diagram below) Scientists have found that mindfulness influences two different stress pathways in the brain, changing brain structures and activity in regions associated with attention and emotion regulation. Scientists are also beginning to understand which elements of mindfulness are responsible for its beneficial effects. In a review of meditation studies, psychology researchers found strong evidence that people who received mindfulness based cognitive therapy were less likely to react with negative thoughts or unhelpful emotional reactions in times of stress. Clinical EFT research has also been scientifically shown to create positive outcomes. See chart below. Source: Dr. Peta Stapleton. While many of my clients have experienced positive outcomes to physical concerns or pain, it is important to note that energy healing is not a substitute for care from your professional medical and mental health team. It is a complementary (or supportive preventative) approach to holistic wellbeing.
